Treehouse Adventures: New Pre-K Exhibit at Catawba Science Center

April 25, 2018

Catawba Science Center is thrilled to announce the opening of its recently renovated pre-k exhibit area, Treehouse Adventures! The area formerly known as Explore it! has undergone wall-to-wall renovation and will be officially open to the public on April 27th, 2018, following the members-only grand opening event.

Designed and fabricated by Design Dimensions, Inc. of Raleigh, Treehouse Adventures is perfect for CSC’s youngest guests with exciting and colorful hands-on activities. The entrance of the exhibit starts off in Autumn, and takes guests through all four seasons of the year, exploring different activities in each section. Kids can climb in a sailboat, explore hide and seek panels, build a snowman, and more in the Autumn and Winter sections. In the Spring and Summer sections, kids can ride a tractor, plant and harvest crops, take them to the market, and even dress the part! The treehouse itself is complete with maps, binoculars and more where kids can use their imagination and creativity to take them on their own treehouse adventure! The exhibition also has features such as sight words, books, and puzzles that parents can use to help teach their children about things like seasons, colors, and wildlife.

The new Treehouse Adventures exhibition is located in the main building of Catawba Science Center, on the SALT Block at 243 Third Ave NE in Hickory. The cost to visit is included in general admission for nonmembers and is free to CSC Members.
